The mission of the School of the Arts is to help build and maintain a unified arts culture both on campus and in the surrounding communities. SOTA is committed to defining the arts in the most expansive and inclusive sense, and to illustrating and exhibiting to faculty, students, and the wider public the power of creativity in all its forms. SOTA is also dedicated to enhancing the resources for the arts through meaningful partnerships with patrons and programs in the area, since we believe that a thriving arts culture not only makes for more vibrant and tolerant campuses, but also for more desirable places in which to work and live.
